94 Ceti (HD 19994) is a binary star system approximately 73 light-years away in the constellation Cetus.

94 Ceti A is a yellow-white dwarf star with about 1.3 times the mass of the Sun while 94 Ceti B is a red dwarf star. According to the new Sixth Catalog of Orbits of Visual Binaries, stars A and B have an average separation of 151 AU.

An infrared excess has been detected around the primary, most likely indicating the presence of a circumstellar disk at a radius of 95 AU. The temperature of this dust is 40 K.[6]

Planetary system[edit]

On 7 August 2000, a planet was discovered,[7] it is most stable if its inclination is either 65 or 115, ± 3.[8]
